I love working in real estate! It is a privilege to advocate for our clients, both buyers and sellers. There is never a boring day. Every single day teaches me something new about this profession and about human nature. My forte is to help take the mystery out of the real estate process.
My background has always been in sales & customer service. After moving to NC from FL, I co-owned a camping/backpacking store called Venture Out in Waynesville, Dillsboro and Sylva, NC. Later, I co-owned a furnishings/home decor & accessories store in Dillsboro called Lighten Up! When small retail took a hit and became less lucrative. I answered a classified ad to work as an admin for a real estate company. After months of watching agents perform & collect commissions...I knew I could do it. I went to real estate school & continued to work in a part time capacity until I got my license. I was licensed in 2004 & the rest is history.
I switched companies in search for the right fit and my clients all switched right along with us. Realtors need to have enough confidence in themselves to move until they find the right fit. With that in mind, a partner & I opened our own company called MoonDancer Realty. Our environment is a good balance of business & friendliness.
We've siezed opportunities to go beyond the typical Continuing Ed classes and both partners have earned their ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) & GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) certifications. Not only do I want my clients confident in my workmanship, This industry constantly shifts. I need to feel the same way about myself and my understanding about this industry. Educational opportunities and day to day experience help me achieve that. I also earned my IMSD (Internet Marketing Specialist Designation) to leverage the marketing opportunities and the chance to stay connected in a personal way to the people I come in contact with.
